NHL suspends Wild forward Mason Shaw for two games


Wild center suspended from the NHL Mason Shaw for two games on Friday, a day after receiving a major penalty and a game misconduct for kneeling in a loss at San Jose.

The league’s player safety department announced the suspension. The penalty came in the second period of the Sharks’ 5-2 win when Shaw came into the boards and controlled San Jose. Yevgeny Svechnikov.

Shaw will forfeit two games’ salary, $8,108.10 based on his league minimum wage. The money goes to the Players Emergency Relief Fund.

After Shaw’s penalty, the Sharks scored twice to take a 4-1 lead.

“That’s my last intention is to take somebody’s knee out,” Shaw, one of the team’s top penalty takers, said after the game. “I feel bad because it put our team in a really bad position, and ultimately it was a difference in the game, so I’m disappointed with myself.”

Time for a break

The Wild enter the NHL holiday break strong in the standings. After 33 games, they are third in the Central Division and sixth in the Western Conference.

That slight solace came courtesy of a six-game winning streak that ended Thursday night. star defender Erik Karlsson scored one goal and set up three more for the Sharks. wild guardian Philippe Gustavsson saw his personal six-game winning streak shattered.

The Wild lost in the second straight game for the first time in five such situations this season.

“We pushed, but [the Sharks] played with a lot of energy tonight”, the coach of the Wild Dean Evason told reporters. “Much more than what we had.”

The players are out until Tuesday morning’s game in St. Paul, flying to Winnipeg and facing the Jets that night.

“[The break will] be good to us all, “Wild forward Jordan Greenway said in a television interview. “There’s been a lot of hockey played, a lot of lineup injuries, a bit of adversity for us. It will be good for us to have a little break here, enjoy the holidays and come back ready.

Good move not rewarded?

savage defender Matt Dumba shook San Jose Matt Nieto with a shoulder-to-shoulder hit in the open ice in the second period. Jacob Megna and another Sharks player went to fight Dumba.

Megna and Dumba received fighting penalties, but neither of the Sharks players received instigation penalties.

“He’s the one that bothered us,” Evason told reporters afterward. “If you take a free-kick, you shouldn’t have to face two people before you fight. It doesn’t make sense. He has to fight for a free-kick. That shouldn’t be in our game.”

Late change

Winger Marcus Foligno was dropped from Thursday’s lineup after warming up, but left the ice with a lower-body injury likely sustained in Wednesday’s 4-1 win at Anaheim. Defender Alex Goligoski stepped in and the Wild went with 11 forwards and seven defensemen.

Evason told reporters after the match that he expects Foligno to be ready to play after the four-day break.

“It was obviously tough, we spent a lot of energy tonight,” Evason said. “The best part is that we can get bigger during the break.”

The savage sent forth Joseph Cramarosa back in Iowa on Friday.
